For the independent minded traveller who likes to make up their own mind as to the itinerary they would enjoy and the pace at which they wish to travel, Goway makes it easy to plan a vacation.

Whether it is a self drive car or a Motorhome, we have supplied several suggested itineraries in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, three countries which lend themselves perfectly to this type of arrangement. We also offer self drive in Costa Rica and Europe.

So let Goway, not only arrange the transportation for you but also, where required, accommodation so that when you travel, you don’t have to worry about making overnight arrangements at the last minute. If you are not sure of the itinerary you want, we have already prepared day by day suggested routings to make sure you drive to the places you should be visiting. And naturally all itineraries can be modified according to your needs and requirements.

Sometimes distances are great and it might make sense, if choosing more than one itinerary, to fly between cities to make sure you see what is important. Whether you like a small car or a larger model, Goway has the car for you – manual or automatic, there is a choice.

In Australia, you can rent a car or a Motorhome. We offer suggested itineraries from 4 to 16 days in 7 States so there is plenty of variety.

For New Zealand, again, a car or Motorhome rental is available. You can choose from 11 different itineraries covering both the North and the South Islands. So once again, the choice is unrestricted.

South Africa is a large country but with the 4 itineraries Goway currently offers, you will be able to experience the highlights that are not to be missed. An amazing self-drive also exists for Namibia.

Europe too is a perfect area for self-drive. Your problem is to choose what are you should visit. We have many suggestions for you to consider.

So let us do the pre planning and then hand over the keys for an unforgettable vacation!

All Downunder clients receive Goway's Co-Pilot Kit of goodies (maps, directions, discounts).

You will probably require accommodation before and after your self-drive vacation. We will be happy to book this for you.

Because of vast distances in Australia you should consider flying between some destinations.

Special airpasses, available through GowayAir could be of interest to you.
